Walking life’s path we all encounter crossroads, obstacles, or inability to see ahead. We might get flooded with anxiety, or bogged down by choice; pausing our journey. One positive way to resume progress is to gain insight into the challenge and find a next step. Taking a step shifts perspective, enabling the discovery of yet more steps. Successful clients begin to view challenges as a way to build understanding, transforming difficulties into opportunities for growth.

One of your biggest challenges in therapy is taking the first steps: choosing a therapist and making the first appointment. You may be worried about whether your therapist will be a good fit, finally confronting a problem, or sitting in the same room with your partner or family. Our first conversations will be about how I can help you and whether I'm the right person for your journey. My approach will center on your lived experiences, development, and your environment. Beyond strengthening individuals and families, I specialize in two areas.

Imagine... you're nervous about starting therapy but you make contact because you've tried your hardest and are tired of living with the disquiet in your life. Your query is quickly met by a welcoming voice that lets you know your concerns matter and are understood by a therapist that is highly skilled in the change process. You feel calmer having made the decision to seek a different solution to deal with your pain. This is what good therapy feels like from the start, calming, respectful, trusting and enriching. You know you are no longer alone, and feel better with each step we take together.

I help anxious and depressed adults learn to effectively communicate feelings and needs. Most adults have been taught to keep feelings bottled up and to not ask for help. Not expressing feelings or not asking for help can lead to feeling isolated and hopeless. Depression and anxiety is often the result. In my 30 years of working with mental health and addictions, I have learned a common behavior is to want to please others. This often creates an imbalance between caring for others and self-care. I will help you establish a healthy balance between what you do for others and taking care of yourself.

My ideal client is looking to try something new. Maybe they've never been to therapy. More likely, they've tried other programs with traditional therapy or IOP offerings and they want off the beaten path. They want their lives to be better and are willing to put themselves out there and do the work. My practice is trauma-centered and utilizes EMDR to help create the shifts and neurological change needed for deep healing. My clients want the gamut from clinical to metaphysical and it is my goal to provide groundbreaking service for all who wish it.

I want to start by saying Thank You. Sometimes being a caregiver can be a thankless job. Caregivers are under a lot of demands and stress which can impact them emotionally, physically and psychologically. Do you spend your days caring for others? Are you a first responder or another type of professional worker with a demanding job that causes you to feel fatigued, depressed, anxious or suffer symptoms of PTSD? If so, you have come to the right place for help. When you become fatigued, you may compromise your own capabilities, safety & well-being, your personal relationships, and maybe even your own career.
